New Music: Former Ghosts

l_f0734a488bcf4aaa92ebed63a6d9c39e

I could seriously count on zero fingers the number of bands who have impacted me in the same way as Xiu Xiu over the past decade.  Jamie Stewart’s consistently to-the-bone honesty and challenging sonic experimentation is a rare gift.  So I was pretty excited to hear that he has joined up with Freddy Ruppert (formerly of This Song is a Mess but So Am I)  and Nika Roza (of Zola Jesus) in Former Ghosts.  A full-length LP is in the works (to be released sometime this year on Upset the Rhythm Records), but for now you can check out three intriguing songs on their MySpace.  The aching and beautiful “Waving” is my personal favorite at the moment, but the other two are superb as well.
